^^^ 6 ft, 170 doesn't sound like a 14.5 inch neck to me. I would measure again before I bought a shirt which I couldn't try on before purchase.

Buy an Extra Slim Fit or Slim Fit Brooks Brothers OCBD (oxford cloth button down) on B&S. They can be had for $45 each. IMO the made in USA BB OCBD is the most versatile shirt out there.

Find a way to exercise your neck. Seriously. There is no OTR I can think of that's going to make a size that fits you. I'm a little taller than you, and about 15 lbs lighter, with a neck that's two inches larger and even I have trouble finding shirts that fit.

 

 

 

 

BTW how is TM Lewin, I keep seeing them and thinking cheeeeeep but if they're crap I don't wanna buy them.

Unfortunately it is correct, I'm wearing a 15" ted baker shirt currently, it hasn't been through a wash cycle yet and I can comfortably put two finger under the collar with room to spare.

I think as I may have mentioned to you in a couple of posts on the MC Casual thread, I am trying to bulk up my upper body, particularly my shoulders that were thought to be too narrow. Maybe that will lead to my collar size increasing. I think I'll just have to put off dressing well for a few more months and have to accept dressing average for now.

As for quality of TM Lewin, I haven't bought from them before so I can't say though at 5 shirts for £100 they seemed the right price. Unfortunately I was unsure if I wanted 5 dress shirts and the fit wasn't quite right so I passed them up.

I hadn't even considered that, but I'll do it right now. Thanks.

Will do. Thanks.

Hi guys !

 

What are the most expensive fabrics with which to build a man's jacket?

How do they rank from most expensive to least expensive?

 

In no particular order:

Wool, linen, silk, polyester, cashmere, merino wool, flax,

 

Thanks

Absolutely.  Make sure your tie is as well and probably best to stick with a white shirt.  Just my suggestion.

not sure it's more expensive than the ass-fuzz wool of the virgin fairy nymphs of Atlantis, but the Hosni Mubarak pinstripes will reportedly run you around $25,000.

srsly tho' I believe Vicuna is the most expensive wool fabric at around $4,000/yard.

I was about to say "no" based on the fact it is a windowpane, but then I looked at the close-up picture and saw how subtle the pattern appears to be.  I would not hold that suit against anyone in an interview.  I think it's fine.

I think in an interview it is always best to err on the side of conservative. A prince of wales glen plaid suit is not that, no matter how subtle. Sure you can wear it after you have the job, but in an interview, no.
